(Greensboro, Ga. – November 2, 2012) Historic downtown Greensboro was overrun with ghost, goblins and witches as children and parents took to the streets in search of a “trick-or-treat.”
Downtown Trick-or-Treat was hosted by Greensboro Better Hometown Program in partnership with the downtown Greensboro merchants. Participating merchants eagerly greeted and provided candy to trick-or-treaters.
The costumes of choice included Captain America, little lambs, bumble bees, monsters, princesses and pumpkins, Superman and many more as children and parents flooded the downtown streets. The children were not the only ones in costume, often times mom and dad got into the act as many were dressed in costume as well!
“The amount of children this year was record breaking,” says Better Hometown Event Coordinator, Kendrick Harris. “More than 1,000 children took part in the event, making this year’s Trick-or-Treat the largest ever!”
A fun time was had by all as downtown Greensboro was happy to offer children and their families with a safe environment to take part in the tradition of Trick-or-Treat.
Greensboro Better Hometown would like to thank Ingles Supermarkets for donating the bottles of water and Spotlight Theatres for donating the popcorn for the evening. Our thanks also to the many downtown businesses that participated in the event.
